Despite steady rain there was a good turnout at Dural for the ARNSW AGM today.
Proceedings were well run and efficient and we were honoured to have WIA president Michael Owen at the meeting.
Michael talked about the current state of Amateur Radio and how the Foundation license has been successful in reversing the decline in numbers of hams. The decline has been seen in other countries more severely than here so things are looking up.
We heard some of Michael's experiences in Japan where he was when the earthquake struck and it was great to meet and have a talk about ham radio and how we fit in to the world wide regulatory scheme of things.
